Whatever was I thinking??!?!
My husband wanted fresh hot Cinnamon Rolls to take to his early morning meeting at work.
I started last night and got all the rolls on trays, saran wrapped the suckers and stuck them in the fridge. When the Mister got up this morning he preheated the oven and got them out and rising again. Well, THIS RECIPE doesn't like that (mental note to self) they just weren't the same. So now I have to remake the hummers (one of these days) so I can prove to his Co-Workers that I really can bake.
Don't get me wrong they are still delicious & yummy but they just didn't have that same Fabulous-ness that they normally do!
But let me just say that this recipe is HANDS DOWN the most:
Roll recipe I HAVE EVER HAD!
Just make them all on the same day..... :)
Thanks to my friend Kim for sharing her amazing recipe with me.
Mix and Cool:
2 C. boiling Water
1/2 C. brown Sugar
1 C. butter or margarine
1/4 C. white sugar
I let this cool in my kitchen aid bowl in my sink filled with a little cold water and I stir it often.
Add in a bowl: 2 Tbsp yeast in 1/2 C. warm water wait until bubbly.
I add a sprinkle of sugar to help proof the yeast.
After your bowl of "sugar water" is cooled off enough add your yeast mixture to it and then add the following:
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
7 C. flour or more for a soft dough
Mix and cover.
Carefully put raised dough on Oiled or floured surface. It rolls out fast
& easy when it's raised up. Roll out to 1/4" thick.
Brush dough with melted butter, and then sprinkle brown sugar all over it.
Next sprinkle cinnamon all over dough.
Roll up tight Cut into 2" rolls.
Place on a greased cookie sheet.
Cover with a towel and let raise really well.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18 minutes.
Makes 3 dozen rolls
3/4 C. Soft butter
3 C. Powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. Vanilla
Pinch of Salt
1-2 Tbsp. Milk
